PhelanBrittany Phelan is one of the women to watch on the young and talented technical squad of the Canadian alpine ski team. After making her World Cup debut in November 2009, she showed some of her promise by finishing fifth in the slalom at the 2011 World Junior Championships.

Her results showed continued improvement throughout the 2012-13 season, including a career-best 10th place finish in the World Cup slalom at Zagreb.
